For Developers by Developers:

This year, Wyncode Academy is thrilled to be the presenting partner and host of the eMerge Americas Hackathon. Our goal is to put on the best hackathon Miami has ever seen – and to do this, we need your help! We want the hackathon to be for developers by developers, attracting the best dev talent and the coolest startups to compete.
In this blog post, we take a quick look at the new hackathon format and share some of the reasons why we’ve made improvements to the format this year.

The theme?

Miami Tech eMerging. We want our growing developer community to build sick apps that showcase our local tech scene. There’s no limit on what you can build, that said, special prizes are available for apps that use the Visa and Kairos API’s.

Want be a part of the hack?

We are opening the doors to all levels of developers from Miami’s incredible tech community. Whether you’re a junior dev or a senior OG, you can register as a part of a company team or as a free agent. Space is limited because we’re hosting at Wynbase so be sure to sign up and take the coding challenge to reserve your seat.

Not a developer?

No problem. You’re welcome to be a part of the hackathon! We are looking for designers and other volunteers to help make the apps better and make sure this event has the whole community involved. We would love to have you! Volunteer here

Why a challenge?

The challenge gives all developers, whether you’re a junior or a senior, an opportunity to team up with free agents that complement their skills. Its also a way that we can make sure you’re engaged in the process. If we sell out, it also provides an equitable way to figure out who gets a seat! Don’t worry we’ll make sure to have representation of all levels of devs.


At Wyncode we value the spirit of community and hustling the extra mile. We want to include you in our community of companies and the spirit of the individual hustle.


The hacking starts now… will you join us? Ready. Set. Code.
